The Rheumatology Futures Group (RFG) – a coalition of patient and professional organisations representing the entire rheumatology community and the pharmaceutical industry – commissioned the King’s Fund to carry out research exploring the impact of NHS structural reconfiguration and service redesign on people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and rheumatology health professionals. The resulting report, “Perceptions of Rheumatology Patients and Professionals”, concluded that patients were experiencing “alarming and unacceptably wide variations” in levels and quality of care, with Government policies having unintended knock-on consequences for patients and professionals alike.

HJCL worked with the RFG to develop and implement a comprehensive communications and stakeholder engagement campaign, so that the RFG could use the King’s research to identify areas where the service was failing patients and professionals, propose possible solutions and make the case for change to ministers, policy-makers and the NHS.
